The Lawn Mower

Posted on November 25, 2016 by Daniel Miller

I got myself a can of Ranger Tire Paint to use on a fairly unique application. My lawn mower. The body was starting to rust and the paint was flaking. So I decided to get to fixing it. The original paint was a difficult to match green that I would need to buy by the pint at least and have professionally applied. It's a lawn mower, it wasn't worth that. So I decided to paint it black and...didn't stop there. I figured, what the hell? You only live once! 

Then I painted flames on the tractor.

But the look wasn't complete! The original wheels were white. BOOO! BORING! So I painted them red. Then I tried a sidewall market to fill in the raised white letters. Yeah, no, didn't work out so hot. So I started looking for tractor tires with white walls. Unbelievably, there is no such thing! I was astonished and disheartened. Lamenting the fact that these did not exist to a friend, he mentioned that I should just paint them. I didn't want to use just any paint so to the Internet I went! A quick Google search turned up Ranger Tire Paint. At roughly $25 shipped to my door I figured hell, it's worth a shot. So I got the paint and went to work! It went on easy as pie and very little prep was needed. It's durable and easy to clean. The only issue I had was some got rubbed off one of the tractor tires because it was flat and I had to drive on it to get it out of where it was in the shed to inflate it. But the results I couldn't be happier with! I'll recommend Ranger Tire Paint to anyone!
